Microsoft’s Lumia 830 will hit several markets across the globe next month. The company has scheduled an event in India on October 1st where they are expected to launch the handset, while the availability is set to October 2nd for UK, and October 13th for China. As for the United States, AT&T has already confirmed they’ll stock the new Lumia 830, but as always, they didn’t reveal an exact availability date.
According to a new report, citing people familiar with the matter, the Lumia 830 will hit AT&T retail shelves from November 7th. It’s a little late compared to rest of the markets, but it appears to be on time for the holiday season. There’s no word if we’ll see it on Verizon or T-Mobile, but the handset is up for sale on eBay in case you can’t wait. The report further mentions that only black color will be available, but thanks to the removable back, users can swap it to any color of their liking.
As far as the internals are concerned, there’s a 5-inch 720p ClearBlack display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 SoC with a clock speed of 1.2GHz and 1GB of RAM. On the storage side, you get 16GB storage coupled with a mircroSD card slot which supports 128GB of expandable memory.
The handset also features a 10MP camera with PureView technology, Carl Zeiss optics and optical image stabilization on board. Other features include 0.9MP secondary camera, 2,200 mAh battery and Windows Phone 8.1 as its operating system out of the box.
There’s still no word about the pricing it will carry, but it shouldn’t be too expensive if we were to guess. We’ll update you as soon as we get any other information.Further reading: Lumia 830, Microsoft, Windows Phone
